What Gear Do I Need to Enjoy Snorkelling in the Tropics?

If you live in Sydney and are heading off to Fiji or Cairns for a winter holiday, you may be asking what gear do you need to enjoy snorkelling in the tropics?

Snorkelling is one of the most popular activities for people visiting the tropics. There are numerous reasons for this, including the fact that it is a great activity for the whole family to participate in, it is safe and easy to set up and run, and it is a very affordable activity. However, if you are going to go snorkelling, you will need to pack the proper equipment to enjoy the experience and be safe. There are several things that you need to take with you on your snorkelling trip.

The first piece of equipment that you need is a decent quality mask. This will help you to see underwater and keep the water out of your eyes. A good snorkelling mask should have a wide field of view, be comfortable to wear, and fit snugly to your face so that it does not leak. You can find masks specifically designed for snorkelling, or you can use a diving mask.

The second piece of equipment that you need is an excellent quality pair of fins. Fins will help you to swim through the water more efficiently and with less effort. They will also help you to move more smoothly through the water and avoid kicking up sand or sediment from the bottom of the ocean floor. A quality pair of fins should be comfortable to wear, fit well, and not impede your movement through the water.

The third piece of equipment that you need is a superior quality snorkel. The snorkel will allow you to breathe easily while swimming on the surface of the water and looking down into the depths below. It is important to get a quality snorkel because if it leaks, it can let water into your mouth and make it difficult to breathe. A quality snorkel should fit snugly in your mouth, have a comfortable mouthpiece, and not leak.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that you have all the gear you need to enjoy safe and fun snorkelling in the tropics!

Finally, as the end of your winter holidays come to a close, and you make your way back to Sydney from your tropical destination, we’re sure you’ll have a lot of great snorkelling in mind for next summer. Why not make snorkelling an all-year activity? In addition to the tropics.
